The RESA, as the Real Estate Practitioners bible, aims to standardized real estate service thus creating curriculum that will become pre-requisite for the next licensure examinations to come. This is the reason why more aspiring brokers are trying their best to go after the opportunity to pass, especially for graduates of any four years, they are avoiding the Real Estate Management Degree.
As an observant and licensed practitioners myself, I’m aware of the next brokers exam and new development it may influence in the industry. When I had my review and seminars in preparation for the exam last 2012, most of aspirants are quite young. Most of which are current sellers from developers, bank employees, sellers under brokers, and some were influenced by peers and are fresh graduates from universities who would like to take the opportunity for professional growth in real estate.
Whatever is your reason and plan for trying to take the next 2013 Real Estate Brokers Examination, I'm sure you wish for the best things to happen. Whatever you are doing prior to review and preparation schedule the amount of effort could help for you to pass the examination.
Some of my friends are interested to try the brokers exam would always ask for how and what are my preparations before taking the exam. Exam score is not that relevant. Since we are in sales and sales or results is the most important of all to earn income.

I can’t give any rate of success for this strategy but help understand how things really work starts from personal assessment, preparation and time management, techniques on reviews and understanding and things to do during examination.
Many brokers today are professionals also in other fields like engineering, accounting and or education. Why? Because they see the opportunity on the industry and the least effort they need to put in preparation for the exam because of examinations experience, or might be a given IQ.
I'm not stating that brokers exam is easy to pass, but it could help understand aspirants to focus more on their strength or improve their weaknesses when it comes to examination process.
Preparation and Time Management
As aspirants, you could be a son or daughter of a broker, a BPO employee, a bank employee, a fresh graduate or current seller in the industry, then you need to better manage your time because it's not all about your time putting on the reviews and seminar, it's not all about the review expense but it's a life changing opportunity.

While in my case, I needed to file leave of absence for a month, to be relieved of my duties and manning schedule at the developer and sacrifice some of my possible closings.
Here are the Preparations and Time management, I could give:
1. Review Certificate and Attendance is the first step.
2. Maximize your time understanding the subject matter each day of review.
3. Have an insight from others, previous examiners or brokers.
4. Have all the materials you need from the review.
5. Have more material resources, better if you can have other materials from other review centers and collectively make your own complete materials: like collection of questions in every subject.
6. Pre-examination could help more understands your level of understanding and preparedness.
1. Make your own study lay out material, like bullet type summary of the every subject matter.
2. Make sure you had at least understood each subject matter and never under estimate the areas of Ecology subject. Research more on this subject as it’s seldom explained in reviews.
3. Understands how each of the subjects works together, to understand and help embrace the challenge of real estate.
4. Make your own review technique, having review material copy on your iphone, a pocket material, complete summary, complete abbreviations and others.
5. Make a final review, and bring a piece of summary during exam for review purpose during breaks. The examination is divided into three and there is a lot of time for you to go back at your summary copy for the next subject.
9. Of course, have a good rest a night before exam to help you relax and be focused on the exam day.
